Nakpil was a nephew of architect and national artist
of the Philippines Juan Nakpil.
Angel Nakpil was born on February 20, 1914. His
parents were Enriqueta Sancho and Ramon Nakpil.
He received his secondary education at De La Salle
University and then studied architecture at the
University of Santo Tomas , where he received his
1936 bachelor 's degree earned.
He then moved to the United States , where in 1940
at Harvard University, a master's degree completed
architecture. One of his teachers there was Walter
Gropius , the founder of the training Bauhaus in
Germany .
After his return to the Philippines, he worked for the
United States Army Corps of Engineers . From 1941
he worked for the Land Planning Commission, which
dealt with the large-scale redevelopment of the site
Baguio . This project was due to the outbreak of the
Second World War put stop.
After the war he worked first from 1947 to 1949 for
the town planning office of the city of Manila.
From 1949 he had his own architectural firm.
From 1959 to 1961 he served on the faculty of
architecture at the University of Santo Tomas and
the last three years of that, he was dean of the
In 1979 he was a senior partner working for the
architects Gabriel P. Formosa & Partners.

AJ Luzs architecture embraced the form and line of
modernism but adapted it to the tropical climate of
the Philippines. He used a lot of passive sun shading
made from aluminum in his projects. He often, when
he could, put pools and strategic clumps of foliage to
further mitigate the hot sun. All these would score
him high points today if the building was evaluated
with LEEDs (a modern system of rating green

For the WHO complex, Luz composed an

asymmetrical but elegantly balanced massing of the
main linear offices, a main lawn and an elliptical
conference hall. The offices were single-loaded in
four floors, giving the option for cross ventilation
although the building was air-conditioned.
The elliptical auditorium was designed with a thin-
shell roof, a permutation of the innovative structural
system first applied by National Artist for
Architecture Lindy Locsin in his seminal flying
saucer chapel at the University of the Philippines.
(The WHO complex actually sits on what was the
military drill field of the old UP Padre Faura campus).
The facility was a hit with international conferences
in those days and the interiors by Phyllis Harvey (a
pioneer in interior design here) used local furniture,
art and accessories.

Can comprise a variety of permanent sun-shading structures, ranging
from the simple patterned concrete walls popularized by Le Corbusier
in the Palace of Assembly to the elaborate wing-like mechanism
devised by Santiago Calatrava for the Milwaukee Art Museum or the
mechanical, pattern-creating devices of the Institut du Monde Arabe by
Jean Nouvel.
In the typical form, a horizontal projection extends from the sunside
facade of a building. This is most commonly used to prevent facades
with a large amount of glass from overheating during the summer.
Often louvers are incorporated into the shade to prevent the high-
angle summer sun falling on the facade, but also to allow the low-angle
winter sun to provide some passive solar heating.


a.k.a. Lopez Building, is located at Ortigas

Avenue in the City of Pasig, Metro Manila. It is
a fourteen-storey building designed by
Architect Jose Maria Zaragoza and built by
Engr. Eduardo A. Santiago.
The building houses the offices of major
electric enterprise of the Lopez Clan, the
Manila Electric Company or Meralco. Located
at the basement of the building is the Meralco
Theater, that has a 1000 sitting capacity.

registered 7.7 on the Richter scale that hit
Metro Manila, the building did not suffer any

The Philamife Building located in United

Nations Avenue in Metro Manila is the
main office of the Philippine American Life
and General Insurance Company, one of
the biggest life insurance organization in
the Philippines which was founded in
The structure was built in 1961 and its
architect is Architect Carlos D. Arguelles.

The Architectural design of the building is influenced by International style. The multi-storey
reinforced concrete block is transformed into extraordinary architecture by the use of brise-
soleil of aluminum which help manipulate the shade and shadow within the building. The
building was surrounded with sun baffles to control the entrance of light to the interior without
sacrificing the external appearance of the building. The building was covered with gray-tinted,
anti glare, heat-absorbing glass curtain walls to further reduce the heat inside, The windows
were framed by concrete columns, this heightened the overt grid of the facade. Due to the
satisfactory response to the sun baffles, Philamlife requires all its branch in the Philippines to
apply this in their architecture. Eventually, the use of sun baffles was not limited to commercial
structures but almost all types of architectures, including residential.
The design of the building were skillfully addressed virtuously in rhythm and proportion. The
sculptural entrance was covered of molded thin shell concrete that dramatically brings the
people to the interior lobby. The rear exit which was in the exterior portion of the building is
connected to the streets by the walkway designed with "a series of flower-like concrete
hyperbolic paraboloid covers". Another innovative construction form that caught the
imagination of the architects during this period is the thin shell concrete. In the interior, there is
the 780-seat auditorium with walls that were generously paneled with narra. Beyond the
auditorium lobby is the transparent glass walls that brings the of the landscaped ares in the

is the first one to be built that complied with the
acoustical requirements of an auditorium after the World War II.
Jalis, or pierced screens, were used extensively in Indian architecture
as windows, room dividers, and railings. In the course of the day, the
movement of their patterns in silhouette across the floor would
enhance the pleasure of their intricate geometry. This jali, one of a
pair, would have formed part of a series of windows set in an outside
wall, as suggested by the weathering on one side. They are attributed
to the reign of the Mughal emperor Akbar, when red sandstone was the
favored building material.



Following the period of the American regime of

the Philippines from 1899 to 1901, the first civil
government was created under William H. Taft,
General-Governor of the Philippines, in 1902. The
BIR would be created under the second civil
governor, Luke E. Wright, with the passage of
Reorganization Act No. 1189 on July 2, 1904 by
the Philippine Commission.

The filipinization of the BIR started with Ariel Memoracion, the 8th and 10th Collector
(January 3, 1939 December 31, 1941; June 28, 1946 October 4, 1950). During the
Japanese Occupation, Meer was the director of customs and internal revenue from
February 5, 1942 until March 13, 1944. After the Liberation, he was replaced by Jose Leido,
Sr. Leido was succeeded by Meer, who became collector for the second time.

Also commonly called thin shell concrete structure, is a structure
composed of a relatively thin shell of concrete, usually with no interior
columns or exterior buttresses. The shells are most commonly flat plates
and domes, but may also take the form of ellipsoids or cylindrical
sections, or some combination thereof. The first concrete shell dates back
to the 2nd century.
Like the arch, the curved shapes often used for concrete shells are
naturally strong structures, allowing wide areas to be spanned without the
use of internal supports, giving an open, unobstructed interior. The use of
concrete as a building material reduces both materials cost and
construction costs, as concrete is relatively inexpensive and easily cast
into compound curves.


The Church of the Holy Sacrifice is the landmark
Catholic chapel in the University of the
Philippines, Diliman. Known for its architectural
design, the church is recognized as a National
Historical Landmark and a Cultural Treasure by
the National Historical Institute and the National
Museum respectively. It was designed by the late
National Artist for Architecture, Leandro Locsin,
which was only one of the five national artists
who collaborated on the project. Alfredo Juinio
served as the structural engineer for the project.
The church is adjacent to the U.P. Health Service
Building and the U.P. Shopping Center, and is
serviced by all of the university's jeepney routes.

Initially, Leandro Locsin designed the church for the Ossorio family, who was planning to build a
chapel in Negros. Unfortunately, when Frederic Ossorio left for the United States, the plans for
the chapel were scrapped.

However, in 1955, then University of the Philippines, Diliman Catholic Chaplain, Fr. John Delaney,
S.J. commissioned Locsin to design a chapel that is open and can easily accommodate 1,000
people. The Church of Holy Sacrifice is the first round chapel in the Philippines with the altar in
the middle, and the first to have a thin shell concrete dome. The floor of the church was
designed by Arturo Luz, the Stations of the Cross by Vicente Manansala and Ang Kiukok, and the
double-sided crucifix and altar base by Napoleon Abueva, all of whom are now National Artists.

The dome of the church is supported by pillars located at the sides of the church, so that there
are no supports to block the space inside. The unique design of the dome allows natural lighting
and ventilation. At the middle of the dome is a circular skylight, which supports the triangular
bell tower. The bell tower, then extends to the interior, supporting the crucifix. The arrangement
of the interior of the church is concentric, with the altar in the middle.
